  • Vanpool fares vary and are based on vehicle type, commute distance, group size, fuel prices and tolls. The monthly cost* is shared by the number of riders. The MetroRideShare Program provides groups with a monthly subsidy towards the monthly vanpool lease:

    • In service area Groups receive a $500 monthly subsidy for commutes beginning and ending within the Capital Metro Service Area.
    • Out of service area Groups receive a $450 monthly subsidy for commutes beginning or ending inside the Capital Metro Service Area.
  • If you're worried about how you'll get home in case of an emergency and thus hesitant to take a vanpool, then we've got you covered. The Guaranteed Ride Home program provides registered MetroExpress, MetroFlyer, MetroRail and MetroRideShare customers with a taxi ride home from work in the event of an unexpected emergency. For an annual membership fee of $5, you can register and get reimbursed for up to 4 emergency taxi rides a year.
